Stocks in this article: CAVM

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cavium, Inc.(NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and the digital home,  today announced that KT (formerly Korea Telecom, www.kt.com),  the largest communication service provider in Korea, has selected Cavium's OCTEON Fusion™ platform for  the first stage of commercial deployment of LTE small cell.

Rapid adoption of smartphones, tablets and media rich wireless devices, coupled with social networking, IP video and internet applications are driving the doubling of mobile data traffic every year.  Globally, service providers such as KT are prioritizing swift rollout of LTE small cell to deliver the data bandwidth required for these applications to their large subscriber bases. Carriers can rapidly alleviate spectrum and capacity limitations, and expand their existing LTE macro cell based networks with an overlay of small cells using Cavium's OCTEON Fusion "base station on a chip" hardware and software platform.  To effectively deploy and manage such a large and distributed overlay radio access network, small cell base stations need to be interoperable with the existing macro and core networks, compact, energy efficient and reliable. Additionally, they need to offer differentiating capabilities such as concurrent support of WLAN, QoS, interference mitigation and Self-Optimizing Networks (SON). The OCTEON Fusion Platform optimally addresses all these requirements in a low-cost and low-power profile.

"Cavium's Fusion processor platform offers a complete carrier grade LTE small cell solution with proven hardware and software supporting a large number of users and the demanding application requirements for multiuser small cells," stated Mr. Jean Choi, Senior Manager, KT. 

"KT has great expertise and experience in LTE Cloud-RAN small cell technology 'LTE WARP', which won the LTE Awards of LTE World Summit 2012. KT continues to demonstrate its leadership with this large scale commercial deployment of LTE small cell networks.  We look forward to supporting their new product development efforts," said YJ Kim, General Manager, Infrastructure Product Group, Cavium.  "We are pleased that KT has selected our OCTEON Fusion as the platform of choice to deploy for their small cell LTE infrastructure. End to End interoperability (IOT) is critical for service provider deployments, and our focus on this area along with our strategic partners is enabling the quick acceptance of our small cell solution by carriers and OEMs."
